On the eve of World Oceans Day, Friends of Glass is inviting everyone to raise their glass to the health of our seas with the launch of the ‘Endless Ocean’ campaign.

POST-BLUE PLANET II SHOPPERS CHOOSE GLASS

The impact of last autumn’s BBC Blue Planet II series, which raised serious concerns about the poor state of our marine systems and oceans, continues to have a profound effect on public attitudes and behaviour. As people try to make more sustainable choices to protect the oceans, glass packaging – famously 100% recyclable and non-toxic - is proving to be a hit with shoppers, as revealed in a new survey by Friends of Glass.

Is more always better?

We’re delighted when people want to recycle more glass – but putting all the glass types found around your home into your household recycling bin or local bottle and jar bank is actually counterproductive.

Does glass really get recycled?

A recent poll revealed that some people don’t bother recycling because they don’t think the material will actually be recycled. We can assure you that this is not true for glass! Glass is never rubbish – it’s a valuable resource. Here are four good reasons to believe that every bottle and jar you use really can and should go on to have another useful life.

We think glass is great for good reasons - being 100% recyclable and good for protecting food and our health. But sometimes it’s just the clever and creative design in glass that get us excited.

Recycle Week message matters

Glass is great when it comes to recycling. All bottles and jars are 100% recyclable and just about every part of the country has a system in place for households to recycle their glass packaging when it’s finished with.

Ecology
Recycle Week message matters

What goes around, comes around.

It’s Recycle Week and this year’s theme - What goes around comes around - inspires us to enjoy the benefits of creating a circular economy - where we make, use and recycle. This is in contrast to the unsustainable make, use, discard linear economy. Recycle Week is great opportunity to learn more, find ways to recycle more, and get more people involved.
